Gay panic: The motion picture

People laughed during the preview screening of Get Hard. This is what bothered me most about the comedy featuring Will Ferrell as a clueless finance executive who hires a much more clueful Kevin Hart to prepare him for 10 years in prison. More than how terribly made it is, how pathetic and offensive its humor [...]

Discover the Chinese American Museum in L.A.

While in Los Angeles looking for a public bathroom I came across a sign for free admission to the Chinese American Museum. How could I not go in and explore?

Book review: ‘A History of Loneliness’

And they’re off!

On Monday, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz announced his bid for president in 2016, skipping the fundraising exploratory phase in which many of his potential competitors are lingering.

Planet Fitness as the new Florence High School
